ESL – English as a Second Language

As a private boarding school, Canyonville Christian Academy offers a full program of study for international students who want to learn English. Classes range from beginning to advanced levels.  Our program begins with a solid foundation in basic conversation as well as introductory reading and writing skills, then moves quickly into a more academic track.

Unlike our mainstream classes, many of the ESL courses are intensive and one-semester.  Our students can advance each semester as their fluency develops. A student entering the ESL program at the beginning level therefore has the opportunity to enter mainstream classes in one year. In order for students to transition this quickly, our classes focus almost predominently on English until a sufficient fluency is attained to ensure success in their more advanced, mainstream and collegiate studies.

The ESL Department at Canyonville Christian Academy is committed to excellence in teaching ensuring ample opportunity for fluency in English, as well as a basic understanding of American culture and the Christian worldview.

We have three possible tracks of study:

Beginning Level Track:

Semester 1 – Reading and Composition 1, Listening and Speaking 1, Study Skills, Geography, music, and PE.

Semester 2 – Reading and Composition 2, Basic Bible, Listening and Speaking 2, American Culture, Geography, music and PE.

Intermediate Level Track:
Semester 1 – Reading and Composition 3, Listening and Speaking 3, Basic Christianity, Study Skills, Math, PE and Fine Arts.

Semester 2 – Reading and Composition 4, ESL Speech, Basic Christianity, American Culture, math, PE and fine arts.

Transitional English Track:
All courses are year long in this track.
English 1, Transitional English, American History, Math, Science, Fine Arts, and PE.
